“First, They Came for the Biologists”

Diversity offices, the very places that were supposed to address bigotry and harassment, have been weaponized and repurposed to catch and cull all who disagree.

Despite the benevolent-sounding label, the equity movement is a highly virulent social pathogen, an autoimmune disease of the academy.

The revolution on college campuses, which seeks to eradicate individuals and ideas that are considered unsavory, constitutes a hostile takeover by fringe elements on the extreme left.

This is from a Tuesday op-ed in the Wall Street Journal “First, They Came for the Biologists” by Heather Heying, a former professor at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, where she taught biology and anthropology for 15 years with her biologist husband Bret Weinstein. The couple resigned from their faculty positions a few weeks ago and received a $500,000 settlement for their lawsuit against Evergreen State College.
